Van Vleet hopes to help the Twin Falls-based junior college continue in their winning ways.

In 2013, CSI’s overall record was 21-10 in the conference with seven wins and three losses at home.

The daughter of John and Natalie Van Vleet excels as a three-sport athlete. Besides volleyball she plays basketball and golf.

“Her size has helped. She’s really strong and has some natural talent. But the coaches have worked with her a lot,” said her mother, Natalie.

A disappointment to her high school career came her sophomore year when she blew out her ACL.

“I thought it was all over,” Alexa said. “But after I went to physical therapy for a year and went to the strength and conditioning, I feel like I’m at 100 percent.”

She said the injury was more of a mental challenge than a physical one.

She said she has been doing a pretty rigorous weight and conditioning program that the coaches have set up and that really helped.

Belinda Taylor, the girls’ varsity coach, said Alexa is awesome and a hard worker.
